Bridgette Profile Photo

Bridgette is a provisionally registered psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and is a student member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). She is currently completing her Master of Educational and Developmental Psychology at Monash University. She works with clients across the lifespan but has a particular interest in working with preschool and primary school aged children.

Bridgette takes a person-centred approach to therapy and has a strong focus on creating a welcoming and empathetic environment for all her clients. Bridgette draws on a variety of evidence-based therapies to suit her client’s needs including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Play Therapy.

Bridgette can conduct cognitive, academic, and psychological assessments including those for specific learning disorders (dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia), ADHD, ASD, mood disorders, and behavioural issues. She can treat and diagnose a range of psychological disorders, and can assist with school refusal, life transitions, sleep issues, stress, and more. She has a special interest in working with individuals who have experienced developmental trauma and children with attachment problems.

She adores her two cats, Buckley and Kiara, but doesn’t think they are quite suited to therapy, so she is looking forward to adopting a therapy animal in the near future.
